I don't understand some of these ultra conservatives at all. Are you supposed to work till you die? Isn't raising the retirement age to 70 tantamount to the same thing? What about disabled people? A burden on society? What is the plan for dealing with that, some gas chambers? What kind of Nazi thinking does it take to come up with some of these plans?
Don't old people have value? Don't we have a lifetime of experiences and lots of mistakes and a few successes to reference when asked? Somehow it has been decided that on a certain day an old person wakes up stupid! I am not sure what day that is but I'm sure I am passed it already. No one wants to hear what I think except my blog readers. My children treat me like I am brain damaged? So they continue to fail and get divorced and go bankrupt and suffer needlessly. If they sought my advice and more importantly followed my advice they wouldn't make so many mistakes. Mistakes I have already made and learned from.
Of course, I am not "fun". I want to live within your means. Save for a rainy day. Not go into debt, especially credit card debt. Not waste money on the latest gadgets. Take care of what you already have. Work at something that doesn't make you sick. Cut down on stress, take some time to just relax and count your blessings.
Learn to think for yourself and not listen to the "experts". Do everything in moderation. Learn to forgive but never forget. Be aware and be alert. Don't be quick to trust.
See...Stupid advice. Who would want to follow any of that? Certainly not young people, they know everything.
